Non-surgical treatments to reduce the signs of ageing on the face
The demand for cosmetic procedures is stronger than ever, with patients looking for the latest innovations to make them look and feel better and more confident.
There is a certain demand for cosmetic procedures with predictable results, little discomfort and minimal downtime and risks of adverse reactions such as allergies. Increasingly men and women are choosing non-surgical cosmetic treatments as they are more in control of the final outcome and can return quickly to their busy lives.
Non-surgical face lifts and skin rejuvenation are gaining an incredible popularity using a combination of thread lifting, thread rejuvenation, mesotherapy skin boosters, micro-needling, wrinkle relaxing agents and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.
There have been differing opinions on whether or not non-surgical face lifting actually works. The answer is yes, it does, provided it is done using the correct techniques, by a skilled practitioner, utilising only the highest quality materials.
About the procedure:
PDO (Polydioxanone) threads have been used for over 30 years as biocompatible resorbable suture materials, in different fields of medicine. With time studies revealed mechanically induced skin tension and stimulation of new cell and collagen formation. Not only do threads lift sagging skin and improve the appearance of cheek jowls and nasolabial lines but they also rejuvenate and improve skin quality and texture.
PDO threads are inserted under the skin carefully, under local anaesthetic, and with the aid of a fine cannula. The threads have little “barbs” which grab onto the skin and lift as the thread is pulled tight. They have a high safety profile with complete absorption within 6 months to a year, having synthesised new collagen in the facial skin.
The procedure causes a small degree of discomfort and downtime, with slight swelling and bruising lasting about a week. Lifting effects are noticeable immediately after the procedure and last up to 2 years depending on age, lifestyle and skin condition.
Best results are seen 3 months after the procedure, as new collagen is created around the threads.
Other treatments such as injectable wrinkle relaxing agents, skin boosters, micro-needling and dermal fillers complement the results and achieve a natural look.

Micro-needling skin rejuvenation treatment system used for treating acne scarring and pigmentation as well as fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged skin pores and improving the general condition of the skin. It’s safe to use on younger and older skin as well as all skin types and tones.
Rejuvapen is the market leading micro-needling device – it's powerful, precise and consistent. It’s a pen-like device which houses a cartridge with 12 fine needles and utilises special growth factor enriched serums. The pen creates micro-perforations in the skin, at various depth and speed depending on particular skin requirements.
This process triggers a natural repair mechanism and renewal of the skin. The specific design makes it easier to treat delicate areas around the eyes and lips.
It tightens, brightens, reduces pore size and rejuvenates facial skin.
For best results 4 to 6 one hour sessions once a month.
The procedure is comfortable, relaxing and with minimal downtime of skin redness which lasts 24 hours.
When combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) it is referred to as the “Vampire facial”.

At Priestgate Dental Clinic we offer a holistic approach in injectable facial aesthetic treatments to create natural results which enhance ones best features.
We combine different anti-ageing treatment modalities targeting specific areas of the face and skin. Patients are offered comprehensive consultation by a dental surgeon with many years of experience in facial aesthetics in order to establish a bespoke treatment plan, addressing an individual's needs.
Suitable for those wishing to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in order to look more refreshed and youthful.
Wrinkle relaxing injections are the most popular, easy, safe and predictable anti-ageing treatment at our Clinic. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and effects last up to 6 months.
The injections target certain facial muscles allowing them to temporarily relax, soften facial expressions and improve signs of ageing. Effects of lifted eyebrows and more opened eyes are especially desirable by most.
Commonly treated areas with muscle relaxing injections are the frown, forehead, eye area ( “crow’s feet”), fine lines along the sides of the nose (“bunny lines”), fine lines adjacent to the lips (“smoker’s lines”) and chin, the cheek jowls as well as the neck.

Dermal filler is an injectable gel-like substance composed of Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin and has the ability to absorb water and nourish our skin.
Fillers are used to plump, hydrate and maintain structure of the skin in areas such as the lips and nose-to-mouth lines (nasolabial folds). They can also be used to reshape the contour of the nose and chin and sculpt the cheeks.
At Priestgate Dental Clinic we use Pluryal Dermal Filler range as it delivers long lasting natural results with minimal discomfort, post procedure inflammation, swelling and bruising. Once injected the filler stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production too.
The effects are evident immediately and last up to 12 months. It is important to note that they are non-permanent and reversible.
Pluryal range of dermal fillers contain the purest form of hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin, free from chemicals and fully biodegradable packaging.
All aesthetic treatments are followed up with a review appointment 3 weeks post-procedure to assess and make adjustments if necessary. This ensures that all patients are completely satisfied with the aesthetic outcomes of their treatment.

Natural, safe and easy – treatment for face, neck and décolletage
As collagen and elastin of our skin diminish with age, fine lines and wrinkles appear. Skin elasticity is also decreased resulting in a dry, rough, pigmented and dull complexion.
One of the best ways to slow down this ageing process is the concept of injectable skin rejuvenation with skin boosters containing the purest form of hyaluronic acid (HA) and vital growth factors, antioxidants and vitamins leading to overall skin hydration and rejuvenation. Often combined with PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for maximum delivery of growth factors for regenerating and bio-remodelling powers to achieve maximum skin health, increased skin density, even smooth tone and glow.
PRP involves the painless collection of a small amount of blood by an experienced dentist similar to a routine blood test. The blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge which separates the platelets and growth factors. The resulting plasma is rich in autologous (your own) growth factors which are the best source of skin regeneration without any additives or foreign compounds.
Minimal discomfort and downtime.
The skin elexir is delivered into the deeper layers of the dermis for most potent regenerating powers via a syringe, cannula and a micro needling device called Rejuvapen.
For best results we recommend one hour session every 4 weeks for 3 consecutive months. Then repeat one session after 6 months.

Prophilo skin booster – contains one of the highest concentrations of pure hyaluronic acid. HA is a substance naturally produced by our skin which plays a crucial role in natural skin regeneration and healing. This is the reason why HA is a common component of many skin boosters and fillers. Profhilo is a unique patented technology containing HA of high as well as low molecular weight without any other additives and stabilisers. After injection, profhilo naturally distributes itself across the layers of the skin and provides prolonged stimulating activity of dermal (skin) cells to produce collagen and elastin. It hydrates, repairs and remodels sagging and aged skin to restore its firmness and glow without causing any side effects and compromising health.
